Elk Hunt Introduction

A 340 gross Saskatchewan bull

For some, the sound of the wilderness is the cry of the loon. To others, it is the howl of a wolf. However, here in the West, what gets our blood boiling is the shrill bugle of the bull elk.  To us, no sound in the outdoor world compares.  Matt Hookom went on this first elk hunt with us in 2009 and harvested this awesome 340 gross Saskatchewan bull (free range) on his first day.

We only arrange PRIVATE LAND elk hunts as we don't feel we can offer the excellent quality hunts we demand on public land.

Silt Colorado Private Land Elk Hunt ($4000) monster 350+ bull elk

Neil Marcellino scores big in 2009 on this 350+ bull

This is another excellent private land Colorado elk hunt with an incredible success rate. In 2009, there was a 100% shooting rate and a 60% success. Unfortunately, there were a lot of missed shots. The hunt is on 27,000 acres of private land (and an additional 82,000 acres of BLM land) in northwest Colorado near the town of Rifle. The area is loaded with elk - you should be into elk every morning and evening. The trophy quality on this hunt is also very good with most bulls ranging from approximately 270-340. The outfitter has been guiding the property for 28 years.

We stay at the lodge and leave out by 4 wheel drive each morning to hunt the different ranches, this is a great hunt because we can rotate properties that we hunt, moving with the game and also giving them a rest to keep the game on our properties. This hunt is fully guided with 2 hunters to 1 guide and includes meals and lodging. The lodge is modern and has all of the conveniences of home with hot showers, home cooked meals, land line phone and Directv.
